A Nostalgic Tale

Fri, 12/19/2014 - 3:27pm

PROVENCE, 1970 BY LUKE BARR

A nostalgic view of the reinvention of American food in Provence in 1970 based on the journals of M.F.K. Fisher.  Luke Barr, the grandnephew of Fisher, details the coming together of Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard.  They cooked and ate and talked late into the night about the future of food in America, while we sit with them and enjoy the evening.    Wonderful stories, wonderful food.

THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD MAKE THIS COOKBOOK BETTER IS IF JOY SENT A DESSERT WITH EACH BOOK. Sue Hill 5 Stars November 25, 2014

Joy the Baker Homemade Decadence: Irresistibly Sweet, Salty, Gooey, Sticky, Fluffy, Creamy, Crunchy Treats   

I just love looking through this cookbook and seeing the photographs of these wonderful desserts. 
The cookie recipe that I want to make for Christmas is the "Melty Chocolate-Truffle Cookies."

While I have not baked all 125, I can tell you that every recipe I've tried out from Joy the Baker so far has left me impressed - Not only due to the accuracy and ease of the instructions for each recipe, but also the taste, texture and all around incredible  look of the finished product.

Wonderful photos and a great index.
